When it comes to selecting a new physician, patients today have quite a few options to choose from. By doing a quick search on the internet, patients will not only find out what is expected from healthcare practices but also find out how an individual practice fares against the competition. Just because a patient initially chooses a practice, doesn’t mean they’ll continue coming back. Read on to learn about four ways that could help you attract new patients and also keep them coming back to receive care.
Mid-office reinvention builds on history
Today’s medical practices face a decidedly nonmedical dilemma: They need to adopt new technologies to better cope with the effects of a worldwide pandemic and its economic fallout. At the same time, they are so busy trying to survive they may feel they lack the time to implement new tools and procedures.
Patients are busy. Having a quick and efficient means of setting up an appointment online through healow Open Access® can help you reduce no-shows, keep schedules full, and reduce administrative burdens on staff, all while giving patients the convenience they want of setting up appointments that work with their schedules.
What would a healthcare practice be without patients to care for? Well, probably not much of a practice at all. National Patient Recognition Week is a time for practices to celebrate patients, focus on patient satisfaction, and learn how to keep patients happy and coming back to their practice.
To thrive in today’s healthcare environment, a strong online presence is vital for quality patient care.
Communication & Connectivity
With value-based care the new standard in medicine, attention is increasingly focused on what healthcare organizations can do to improve Patient Engagement. A clear strategy for retaining patients and attracting new ones is a key part of delivering consistent, quality care.
An outstanding EHR is essential but not enough. Providers today must respond to patients’ demands for convenience and access — including online portals and telemedicine.
Successful engagement comes from a commitment to clear, effective communication. That requires paying attention to the technological and human sides of the patient encounter.
